CAREER TRANSITION:  How to Get Out of Your Own Way

Presented by June Melvin Mickens,  President & CEO of Executive Advantage , LLC

Speaker Website:

Let’s cut to the chase.

Are you stuck?

You’re out of work or in a job that’s taking you nowhere.

You know you need a new opportunity…but, you’re over 40, or you’ve known only one industry in your career, or you have no idea what you want to do next, or you’re feeling strangled by others’ expectations about the path your life should be taking, or some combination of the above.

Guess what?  The truth is that any obstacle you just ticked off is only a smokescreen to what’s really going on.


Here’s what you’ll experience:

·         Discover the underlying reason why many people feel “stuck.”

·         Explore what’s likely to be keeping you from reaching the specific results you desire.

·         Leave with tools you can immediately use to move forward.


What can you do before then?

·         Describe why you’re stuck. What’s the situation that’s making you lose sleep or keeping you from going forward?

·         Write it down in a single paragraph and send it to June before the meeting.  Email it now {to:  subject: (40Plus) I'm "stuck" because: }, or bring it with you on July 19th. That’s it!  We’ll weave as many actual participant situations into the session as possible.  (Note:  You will not be required to discuss the issue publicly, but you will have an opportunity to turn the situation around.)
